Architecture Design of Hudson River House

Description About The Project

The Hudson River House designed by Resolution: 4 Architecture is a new and modern house in Croton-on-Hudson, a village in Westchester County, New York, for a couple nearing retirement.

From the approach, the house utilizes daylight but maintains privacy by means of clerestory windows. Located on one of Croton-on-Hudson’s highest overlooks, the house conceived around maximizing panoramic views of the town and river below via floor-to-ceiling windows across the facade. Also, when needed, operable windows utilized for cross ventilation from the river breezes, reduce the mechanical load. In addition to this, solar panels arrayed across the entire roof of the house.

The house composed of a main volume, clad in metal siding, supported on steel columns, with a stair and elevator core on its South side faced in ipé wood. This larger form extends eastward to rest on a narrow bar – like structure, sheathed in white cement board, which encloses mechanical systems and storage space. Moreover, at the intersection of the two, the architects carved a space for the carport, through which a visitor first glimpses the river.

Once insides, the home office, serving as a threshold to the guest bedroom. And offers additional views when seated at the built-in desk. A covered central deck, enclosed on three sides, can transform into a seasonal outdoor room with a firepit and drop – down insect screens. The guest room features a murphy bed, so it can be used as an additional living space when unoccupied. Below, a long lap pool and deck provide shade while exercising or lounging in the water.

Text by the Architects: After living in Manhattan for decades, the owners, a couple nearing retirement, sought to trade the confines of city living for a site with sweeping views of the Hudson River. They wanted a compact home that was as extraordinary as the vista it offered, equipped with just enough space for two.  The Hudson River House is lifted high in the air to enhance views, with storage spaces and an outdoor recreational zone below.
